Rust

Amazingly enough, the first movement for Baritone and orchestra also got finished today! Now I shall concentrate my efforts on the 2nd movement (Tuhka). Only two bars written for bassoon exist, which means there's plenty of work left!



Vihiluoto

It's finished. Well, almost. My first orchestral piece, that is. I call this "Vihiluoto" and the duration of the piece is approximately 10 minutes 30 seconds. I sincerely hope I get to hear it played one day.

A new suit(e)

As I'm working on my first opus for full symphony orchestra (a symphonic poem, I believe), I started another opus which is for baritone voice and symphony orchestra. There will be 2 movements, entitled "Ruoste" (Rust) and "Tuhka" (Ashes). The texts are finished already (not written by me!) and the first movement is almost 3 and half minutes at this point. I don't believe the work will have a specific name per se, it will probably be called something like "Two songs for baritone and orchestra", or something similarly boring : )

Oh! and I got another commission for commercial video music. More info on that later...

Side project

All of a sudden I was commissioned for music for a commercial video ad. I am currently working on version #3, as the customer was not pleased with previous efforts. I can only hope this one does the trick... Drum loops, distorted guitar and whatnot. What's not to like?!

Still writing

Good times writing new material for full symphony orchestra. Learning lots in the process and there's already one side project coming up, which would never have been born had I not started this in the first place. I will tell more about the side project later, as it's really in its first steps, not much on "paper" as of yet. Let's just say that it will have a symphony orchestra with vocals in it.

New scores

While I'm working on my first orchestral piece myself, I just got these 3 scores fresh in the mail today to study.

Almost ripe

The very first chili is almost ready for consumption! There are many more coming so it hasn't been all for nothing. Good times!





This one is called "Cayenne long slim", I believe.
